Crane slips into a ditch

An All Terrain crane slipped off the road near Nantes, in France on Wednesday causing a road closure and a cut to the the local electricity supply.

The crane a five axle Liebherr from Mediaco’s depot in Nantes was travelling along the D 744 between Moncoutant and Cerizay to the south east of the city, when it ended up in a ditch and resting against an embankment. Thankfully no one was injured in the incident.
